  Place the pet in the professional dog bath tub and secure it so its head cannot hang over the edge of the tub. A rubber mat on the bottom of the tub will help make the pet feel more comfortable and prevent its feet from sliding the water temperature should be warm and comfortable to the touch.


Bathing Process

When the coat, beginning at the back of the neck, then down the spine toward the nil. Keep the water nozzle very close to the skin to allow the water to fully penetrate the coat. Bring the water back to the shoulder area and work one side of the pet, including the legs. Repeat the process on the opposite side.

If the pet has a heavy coat, be sure it is thoroughly saturated. Return the sprayer to the head area and wet the head. Take care not to get water into the ears or up the pet's nose. If the pet resists, lower the water pressure and place your hand between the eyes and the nose to create a shield that will prevent the water from getting into the nose.

If the pet has any type of debris caught in the fur around its eyes, in the furnishings of the ears or under the tail, saturate those areas with warm water. Allow these areas to soak while wetting the rest of the body. Keep the spray hose as close to the pet's body as possible to work efficiently. Check the pet's glands and express them, if necessary. Rinse any debris off the pet and down the drain.
